The event will be held on Friday at 7.30 p.m. as part of the FAM programme, performed by two dancers and researchers


As part of the Arts and Movement Festival FAM programme, the Auditorio de Tenerife is offering, Transmissions. Conferencia bailada sobre danzas urbanas (Transmissions. A conference danced to urban dance) performed by the dancers and researchers Guille Vidal-Ribas and Javi Casado. It takes place in the Castillo Hall, with entry through the car park, this Friday (29th) at 7.30 p.m.

Transmissions is the title of a conference and show that combines music, audio-visuals, spoken word, and live movement to explain urban dance in all of its dimensions. It offers a discourse that is dynamic and accessible to all audiences and is enriching for both experts and those who want to get an introduction to urban dance.

Some of the key aspects considered are where, when, and why these forms of expression were created, what characterises them, and how they continue to develop today. Likewise, the impact that they have had, not only in the field of dance but also on popular culture as a whole from the end of the 20th century until the present.

Transmissions is the result of research carried out by Guille Vidal-Ribas (winner of the 2022 award for Best Dancer for Transmissions at the XXV Critics’Awards of Performing Awards of Catalonia) and Javi Casado (a dancer from Tenerife who works in the field of circus creation at the Ateneu Popular 9 Barris and who is the founding member of Vulcana). This piece presented by both covers the knowledge acquired over more than two decades as urban dancers, combining it with information taken from a broad range of documentary evidence and interviews with pioneering figures and national and international benchmarks in this field.
